We are pleased to announce that on Sunday, February 24, the Italy-America Chamber of Commerce Texas will be hosting a seminar for a group of visiting Italian winemakers, food producers, and Italian-focused food and wine trade distributors and importers at the Hilton Post Oak hotel in Houston’s Galleria district.
For this year’s seminar, the chamber has assembled a fantastic group of trade observers and members including acclaimed food and wine writer Bruce Schoenfeld, Master Sommelier June Rodil, veteran restaurateur and wine importer and Nathan Smith, Rouses Supermarket private label coordinator Pat Collins, New York-based Italian food product importer Cecilia Ercolino, and Italian food and wine educator and writer Jeremy Parzen, who will lead the panel.
The theme for this year’s discussion is “how to make your Italian food or wine brand relevant in the United States.”
The event is underwritten by the Italian government’s True Italian Taste campaign, which promotes awareness of authentic Italian food and wine products and authentic Italian foodways.
Il progetto True Italian Taste è promosso e finanziato dal Ministero dello Sviluppo Economico e realizzato da Assocamerestero in collaborazione con le Camere di Commercio italiane all’estero, per valorizzare e salvaguardare il prodotto agroalimentare autentico italiano. True Italian Taste è parte del programma “The Extraordinary Italian Taste”.
